Below is BA’s current schedule for November… or is it? In fact, although they may have actually filed this as their plan, they are already tactically cancelling empty flights such as Barbados where there is a flight scheduled from both Gatwick and Heathrow. Sadly, they are cancelling the Heathrow flights that aren’t full, meaning a lovely flight from Gatwick North with the delights of the Club Aspire lounge to look forward to!

However, they are resuming more destinations in the US such as Orlando and Phoenix which are allowed since the requirement to enter the US through set “gateway” airports has been removed. Cancun will also resume for the winter. 

You can see from the schedule that BA will not resume flying the A380 as they had originally planned for November.

    I’m just waiting for many more cancellations to these schedules. I am due to fly to BKK on the 4/11/20 and BA have changed the return flight from BKK to LHR from 24/11/ to 23/11 But no word on the outbound leg. I have spoken to the Le meridian hotel in Bangkok and they have left our booking open until next year.
    With Thailand’s borders still closed to foreign tourists for the foreseeable future I’m just waiting for the inevitable email from BA with the grim news of another cancelled flight.

    I am due to fly the BKK on the 4/11/20 and had an email from BA changing the return date from BKK to LHR from 24/11 to 23/11. I have spoken to BA chasing up another refund and the customer services representative said that it will not go ahead as scheduled but is not allowed to confirm to me. I am just waiting for the inevitable email to say the booking is cancelled as Thailand’s borders are still closed to foreign tourists for the foreseeable future.
    We have just got back from dominion republic and are in quarantine for two weeks.Flight cancellations (with Swiss) and alterations even two days before we were due to fly back Meant that instead of a 19 hour flight from Punta Cana via Zurich France the LHR we opted to fly united via Newark to LHR extra costs (Had to apply for an ESTA).It’s only the brave that venture out now.

    • You could just cancel BKK now and get a full refund due to the date change. Yes you need to be someone who can cope with multiple changes and keep up to date with a rapidly changing situation at the moment.

        Thank you Michele that has been a great help and one less worry now to deal with the internal flights we have booked 🥺

  3. I’m due to fly to Singapore in December, I’m guessing it won’t happen, are these flights being cancelled or still going with cargo -!: a handful of people who are allowed in?

  4. Thanks Michele for a comprehensive update. There’s stacks of availability to BGI at the moment and as we know, under normal circumstances in J or F, they are like hens teeth.
    I look forward to your report on Barbados- I managed to get 2 seats in J way back in December but cancelled them for next month only yesterday- as Gordon above says- only the brave will venture out at the moment and I’m not that brave as my better half is immunosuppressed.
    I’m now hanging on to decide what to do about CPT in January. We’ve never been to SA so I was really looking forward to it. We usually get away for a couple of months in the Winter but I fear those rare seats will need to be cancelled too.
    Enjoy Barbados- it’ll be interesting to see what the BA catering is like and the refurbished LGW 777’s.

    • I am also immune suppressed which is why I chose Barbados. Everyone tested 3 days before. Quarantine on arrival until second negative test. Huge amount of testing There and very few cases apart from those detected from elsewhere. That’s as safe as it gets for me which is why I risked it. However, now sitting next to someone in Club who is “exempt” from a mask and coughing and sneezing I’m hoping to god those tests work!

    Michele, hope you have a great time in Barbados, but I can’t see BA’s revised schedule looking anything like their plan. Whilst the entry gateway restrictions may have been lifted as far as i know FCO advice is still against travelling the the US and, again, as far as I know no visitors can enter the US from the UK and Europe?
    Therefore, unless they are planning to lift those restrictions, which i doubt, then a load of last minute cancellations will occur.

  6. I remember you saying you’re immunosuppressed Michele so you’re a brave girl. I can ski down black runs and church myself out of an aircraft in pursuit of an adrenaline fix but this virus is frightening for me.

    We’re all seeing travel as we know and love it destroyed so I’ll try my best to male the CPT run in January. I should stop watching the news.

    Bon voyage!

    • In my situation I have been living with the fear that something could kill me all the time. A dodgy sandwich which has listeria, flu as vaccine is only 60% effective and hundreds of other things. I could sit at home from the rest of my life on my own or I can take the best precautions and live my life. After all I am statistically more likely to die in a car crash this year than contract Covid and die from it in most situations.
